What is Hysterotomy?

A hysterotomy (also known as an emergency abdominal rescue in cases of shoulder dystocia) is an incision in the uterus, commonly combined with a laparotomy during a caesarean section. Hysterotomies are also performed during fetal surgery.

In fetal surgery, without inhibition of uterine contractions, premature labor is a complication that occurs in 100% of hysterotomy cases. It can be inhibited by tocolytics.
